Subject: Call for Proposals from Center for Field Research/Earthwatch 

Call for Proposals: The Center for Field Research invites 
proposals for 1997 field grants awarded by its affiliate 
Earthwatch.  Earthwatch is an international non-profit 
organization dedicated to sponsoring research and promoting public 
education in the sciences and humanities.  All funds awarded by 
Earthwatch are derived from the contributions of Earthwatch 
members who pay for the opportunity to join scientists in the 
field and assist with data collection and other research tasks. On 
average, each volunteer contributes $600 - $900 towards the field 
grant and spends 12 to 16 days in the field. Grants range from 
$8,000 - $100,000 depending on the project length and number of 
volunteers involved.  Preliminary proposals for Earthwatch field 
grants should be submitted at least 13 months in advance of 
anticipated field dates. Full proposals are invited upon review of 
preliminary proposals.  

Information about Earthwatch field grants is available on The 
Center's World Wide Web site
